Don't bring a soft-rocker to a metal fest.
- Hybrid RipIt camber profile provides a mostly cambered shape with just enough rocker to disengage from the snow about 15cm before the contact points
- PressurePop KEVLAR® and basalt plates laid in a reverse-v pattern transfer energy from your bindings to the tip and tail and create a super-strong platform for big landings
- KEVLAR® impact plates under the bindings add strength underfoot to further reduce the chance of a broken board when you stick a 50-footer
- Thin Carbon Torque HotRods are milled into slots that run from the end contact points for additional pop and torque in turns
- Airpop Core uses ultralight wood with added bamboo for strength so you get the power and flex you need without the added weight
- Ultralight CarbonBiax Laminate offers power shredders super-smooth flex designed to snap out quick turns and bounce down pillow lines
- SinterCarbon.2 base features hard carbon nanoadditives to create the fastest, hardest base in the Rome line

Rode the 161 in Alaska last spring. I'm a big fan of the Hybrid camber, it rides short when making low angle turns at slower speeds, but then rides long when you let the board run. Next spring when I head back I may step up to a 163, but I had absolutely no complaints on the 161.
